Kronstad, Bergen

Kronstad is a neighbourhood in the borough of Årstad in the city of Bergen in Hordaland county, Norway. It is located in the northern part of the borough, south of the large Store Lungegårdsvannet bay, east of the neighborhood of Solheim, north of Minde, west of Landås, west of Møllendal and Haukeland; the neighbourhood was named after the old Kronstad farm, known as "Hunstad". After the vicar of Bergen Cathedral purchased the farm in 1705, the name was changed to "Cronstad" which changed to Kronstad. Architect Ole Landmark designed several buildings in the area. One of his main works is the former cinema Forum Kino, a functionalist building from 1946; the municipality sold the building in 2006, it is no longer used as a cinema. In 2007, it was resold to the Christian television channel Visjon Norge, it has since been used for a number of purposes, including revival meetings and theatre performances. Other buildings by Landmark include "Clementsgaard", now the headquarters of Henschien Insurance, a villa inspired by the Rococo and Empire styles.

The former manor house Kronstad Hovedgård was built in the late 18th century. It was sold to consul Joachim Friele in 1840, who hired architect Ole Peter Riis Høegh to reconstruct the building; the expanded and altered building was inspired by the Empire style. The area has several churches. Årstad Church, a stone church from 1890, is one of Årstad borough's six Church of Norway churches, is located adjacent to the border with Bergenhus borough. The Seventh-day Adventist Church Adventkirken i Bergen is located far northeastern in Kronstad, just north of the road Danmarksplass; the oldest of the free churches in the area is Bergen Frikirke, established in 1899, which used a church building on the road Bjørnsons gate. That building is now used by Evangeliekirken, a Pentacostal church, while Bergen Frikirke uses a modern church building further south-west; the three faculties of the Bergen University College are co-located in a new campus built on the site of the old NSB depot in southern Kronstad, next to Kronstad station of the "bybanen" Bergen Light Rail system.

Many of the old depot buildings are integrated into the new campus, designed by the architect firms HLM Arkitektur og Plan and CUBO Arkitekter. The project was allotted funding in the government budget of 2008 for what would become one of the largest and most high-profile construction projects in the country, entailing relocation of around 1000 state employees. Construction began in 2010, was completed in 2015. Stage 1 of the Bergen Light Rail line will pass through Kronstad, one of the 15 stations of the initial stage will be located just south of the Bjørnsons gate/Inndalsveien intersection, it will be the seventh station from the northern terminus and the ninth station from the southern terminus at Nesttun. The rolling stock depot of the first stage will be located directly northeast of the station, adjacent to the railway line that, prior to the Ulriken Tunnel's opening in 1964, served the Bergen Line; the primary thoroughfare in the area is Ibsens gate, which runs from Haukelandsveien, just south of Haukeland University Hospital, to Danmarksplass, has an annual average daily traffic of 10,000-11,000 vehicles.

Bjørnsons gate runs from Fjøsangerveien, south of Danmarksplass. The western part of the road is part of Norwegian national road 582, which continues southwards to Minde as Inndalsveien; the construction of the Bergen Light Rail system brought with itself many changes to the local road system. Several roads were temporarily closed during part of the construction period, among them Ibsens gate, the main road to Haukeland University Hospital. Bjørnsons gate was converted into an eastwards one-way road between Inndalsveien. Inndalsveien was widened to make room for the Bergen Light Rail trackage. Jonas Lies vei a busy thoroughfare between Danmarksplass and the hospital, was closed at its western end. Kronstad Station

Heinrich Fehrentz

Heinrich Hermann Fehrentz was a German truck driver and sportsman, critical to the Nazi regime and listened to foreign radio stations, so called Feindsender. He was arrested and executed at age 35. Fehrentz came from a miner's family in Saarland, near the French border, had nine siblings. At age 14 he had to work in a coal mine, he left the locksmith's training in Saarbrücken for economic reasons. Afterwards, he became a wandering labourer in Alsace and Luxembourg, working as a land-grabber and locksmith. At the end of the 1920s he moved to Heidelberg to live with his brother Hans. First he worked there as a roller shutter fitter, he was a member of the Red Sports, where he did wrestling. After a motorcycle accident, he found a job as locksmith at the company Seppich, he married Gertrud née. Blum in 1938; the couple had two children. After the defeat of Stalingrad the Nazi regime exacerbated their policies against any kind of resistance inside the Reich. Fehrentz was an outspoken anti-fascist and was introduced to some members of the illegal Communist Party by his brother.

He did not join the Party but he met some friends at the local pub "Zum Neckarstaden" for bowling and exchanging news they heard from acquaintances or from the radio programs of the Allied forces. The group was opposed to the Nazi regime; the circle was betrayed by an informer to the Gestapo. On 10 February 1943, seven persons were arrested, including Heinrich Fehrentz, on 26 October 1943 they were sentenced by the Oberlandesgericht Stuttgart; the accusation was "preparation for high treason, undermining of military morale and listening to enemy radio stations". Six of his friends were sentenced to lengthy prison terms, while Heinrich Fehrentz was sentenced to death. Prosecutor Krebs has characterized him as a dangerous enemy of the Reich and as the leader of the group. Emilie Fehrentz remembers: "And I was present there, they had fixed everything in advance and they read the verdict directly from the print-outs. You can say, it was like a show trial." On 22 December 1943 he was executed in Stuttgart.

In 1950, an honorary grave site was established in Heidelberg's Bergfriedhof, the main cemetery of the town. It reminds the resistance fighters of Heidelberg murdered by the Nazi regime. There his name is engraved in a memorial stone. In 1974 the Mühlstraße in Heidelberg-Bergheim was renamed to Fehrentzstrasse.
